WILLIAMSTOWN, MA – With the overlap of the successful fall women's volleyball season and the start of the Ephs' winter basketball schedules it has become necessary for Williams College to adjust its men's and women's basketball tournament schedules for this weekend.
Tournament games will now be played at three different locations: The Amsler Campus Center at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in North Adams, Mass., Chandler Gym at Williams College, and historic Lasell Gym also at Williams.
"It is a busy weekend here at Williams College," noted Eph Athletic Director Lisa Melendy. "We were very excited and pleased to be selected as a host for the NCAA Regional Volleyball Tournament this weekend. We were also scheduled to host men's and women's opening basketball games and we could not be more grateful for MCLA's willingness to work with us by providing space in their gym for these events. MCLA Athletic Director Scott Nichols and I communicate frequently about how our programs can support each other and work together. Here is a great example of that support."
The men's tournament will be played Friday and Saturday, while the women's tournament will be played Saturday and Sunday.
